 He is looking so old :(

Well Zache brought Thor round today as a nice surprise for me which it was it totally made my day ^-^ however i did almost have a heart attack when i heard heavy footsteps coming up the stairs until the head popped round the door! However seeing his face made me sad he isn’t how i remember him he has changed so much since a couple of months ago must be the stress of retiring and loosing his sister bless he is just so grey...

Poor ol’ Thor! I know a ton of people who think a dog can’t bond to other dogs so closely, but thats so not even true. Thor is so beautiful.

I know worst of all he is only not long turned 4 years!! I don’t think it helps that they don’t really have a long life expectancy due to there super large size there body grows up ALOT quicker than there personality like when they where 6 months they both were mellow as if they were 2 year old and now with Thor being 4 and when Zena was here they both acted as if they were 8 apart from when they were in the field!

But i agree i also believe a dog will bond to another and especially alot more if they are litter buddies. but my heart goes out to him Zache says he is still happy when he is out and about especially when he takes Thor, Missy, Daisy, Kyla and Brea out up the mountains he says he is like a spring lamb prancing around ^^ but in his kennel and Zaches house he just sulks definetly misses Zena :(

Has he tried putting him with another dog? Dogs def do bond to other dogs. Joker flips when Shadow isn’t with him, especially if she is prego.

Thor only does well with other Bullmastiffs as that is what he has been raised around he surprisingly gets along with Milla though, plus he only has BMs on his home that is his favorite dog of all choice. He likes being around Daisy, Missy and Brea but he doesn’t like sharing a kennel with them he seems to get very stressed as if they are invading his privacy he most likely is sulking in there as he doesn’t have Zena to annoy anymore ^-^

Yup they have also stayed overnight in the large kennel which just looks like a large pen he just picks up a toy, finds a corner, circles the floor and lies down with his head on the toy and that will be him for hours on end.

I feel totally bad for him and i would have him living in my house in a heartbeat but with him being a working dog the house life stresses him out really bad he is ok inside aslong as he know he can get outside and coming inside in short periods but he can’t stay inside overnight and in the yard he panics too if anything it is nicer for me to keep him in his kennel as he just sulks apart from meal times and play times whic is most of the day breakfast and dinner is 6am and 6pm, then they are out the kennels from 8am until 5pm either running around doing as they please or on a pack walk through the wild. With them being outside dogs they are very well looked after Zache like me has a small time job but we both rely on our dog working for money but it seems a quick way to make a buck but if anything more money goes into working them than the selling price lol ^-^
